We decided to go to Philadelphia yesterday, before the crazy 4th of July crowds. We got there at 9AM, before many of the tourists showed up. It was so early, there was no line for the liberty bell, and hardly anyone around it.

Three boys by the bell

This is the room where they signed the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.
Jefferson's draft of the Declaration of Independence

We are sitting in George Washington's pew at Christ Church. Benjamin is in the Ross pew.

Betsy Ross' house - the only place we paid to get into all day.
